A body that was inside a Rockford funeral home’s van when it was stolen Saturday has been found on Chicago’s Far South Side, according to police.
According to NBC affiliate WREX, a van from Collins & Stone Funeral Home was stolen with a man’s body still inside. A day later, the van was located in Chicago, Rockford police said in a tweet.
